Karlovic vs Gabashvili by Catalonec
Ivo Karlovic had have an amazing week in Delray Beach and of age of 35 he was able to clinish his 6th ATP single title. The experienced Croatian was simple on his best level. Instatly come in Mexico and as 6th seed of the tournament have also nice chances for good result. Didn’t change the surface, didn’t change the conditions which are quiet similar. But, IMO, he is not that young to recover fast and to manage second tournament at his best level. Expect him to be little more tired, having adapting problems at the begging and showing little issues. Own-serve game to give him the calm and sure way to realize the games. His opponent Gabashvili is solid tennis player, pretty much hard server and solid into ralies and from the baseline. The major weapon of his underdog situation probably will be keeping strong his serve-game and using the tired period of Karlovic’s game to push him under hard task. The Russian is able to bring that kind of match.
IMO, in this conditions, I see a hard battle and a long match here, seeing both players capable to express.
